i just wanted to introduce myself and say a little bit about my thyroid journey.
I've suffered with a dysfunctional thyroid for over ten years. Sometimes hyper, sometimes hypo, never getting treatment that worked, never feeling well.
Then in March 2015 i sufferered a thyroid storm and went into heart failure.
I've since had my thyroid removed, a cardioversion to reset my heart, three eye operations to combat thyroid eye disease and a full hysterectomy, all caused by my thyroid.
Im now 3 stone heavier, suffer pain and fatigue And have a permanently damaged heart.
I don't convert T4 so I get my T3 on prescription in a limited amount due to cost. My GP and my Pharmasist have both said they will fight for me to stay on Liothyronine, without it I am bed ridden and crippled.
Not sure what the future holds but I know I'm not alone.
Thanks for listening x
